Australia's WWII Remembered By The Men And Women Who Lived It.
'Blood, Sweat And Tears' brings together the first -hand accounts of more than seventy-five ordinary Australians who did extraordinary things during World War II. Prisoners of war, airmen, nurses, land girls, internees, school children, soldiers, sailors, and volunteers of every description share their memories of a time of horror, tragedy, love and excitement.
Australians took part in every arena of the war, and these moving accounts include memories of the campaigns in Europe and Africa; the battles for the Kokoda Trail, New Guinea and the islands; the internment camps of South-East Asia, and the notorious Burma-Thailand Railway.
Also included are stories from the men and women who kept things working and supported the war effort on the home front. This is a remarkable portrait of men, women and children at war.
